In the coming months, computer science charity The Raspberry Pi Foundation will release its namesake device, a single-board computer that costs only $25 and is the size of a credit card.

Designed specifically to help teach basic programming and offer a cheap computing option in third-world nations, the Pi packs a 700MHz processor, 128MB of SDRAM, a 1080p codec, and one USB and one HDMI port so it can be plugged into a touchscreen or TV to provide a functioning unit powerful enough to run Quake III. QIII, as you know, came out in 1999, so that might not be saying much about the Pi, but at that pricepoint, why not give it a shot?
